I cry rivers of tears So caught up in the fear that You may never know me THE REAL ME. I’m lost to a society That tried to teach me The error of my ways But… Do .....you ..........see ...............me? Do you? Adorned in green and white stripes As I stand before you You ask me if this is real …my river of tears What do you expect me to say? I saw fear in the eyes of a child And when I told someone They asked, “Why do you care?” But I do care. My river overflows With the depths of my caring So, I stand here…Sharing The deepest parts of me I cry rivers of tears That flow up hill For fear…of the pain I feel YES…This is real I’m drowning in a river of Unsolicited teardrops I can’t get my mind to stop thinking that I have failed…ME. Hear my teardrops.
